Gary and Amy were so wonderful to work with, so enjoyable and so fun. They took the time to meet with us and learn our style of music and how we envisioned our wedding and reception to be. They provided the perfect mix of music for everyone in attendance and kept the party flowing all night. Their price was very reasonable and service exceptional. We couldn't have been happier. They were so awesome! We would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. We can't imagine that any other dj company would even come close. We only wish we could do it all over again!

Gary and Amy were wonderful and exceeded our expectations on our wedding day! As a hospitality professional myself, I look forward to recommending this duo for future celebrations. They coordinated our ceremony music beautifully with
a CD and playlist, and followed my playlist throughout our entire reception. They have every song, and if they dont, they will download it for your event. Gary is a great MC as well, awesome personality. Book Gary and Amy for your next celebration! Thank you for making our wedding a great event! Love, Mr. & Mrs. Henry

My fiance and I met with Gary and Amy after researching DJ costs and finding that Top Dog Entertainment had the lowest fees. Once we met with the two, we knew we were done looking. One of the easiest and quickest choices we made during the whole wedding planning process. Gary and Amy are the nicest people and have a great sense of humor. They happily accepted my extended "must play" list, made suggestions, and I got to hear all the songs I wanted to hear. When additional songs were needed, they were spot on with their selections. They showed up early and set up without a hitch. Most amazing, was when we ran out of the alcohol for our mojito bar, Gary actually went out and got us more. He wasn't from the area (we got married in Vero Beach - no travel fee!) but didn't hestitate to venture out. Gary and Amy will go above and beyond what one would expect from a DJ and they do it because they love their job. My guests had a blast and had lots of nice things to say about Top Dog Entertainment.

Gary & Amy did a fabulous job of entertaining our guests at our wedding. They took many, many requests from the guests and instantly played the songs! The highlight of the evening was the last hour when we turned the reception into karaoke. Everyone got into it and had so much fun! We wanted to stay another hour for that! My friends are still talking about how much fun the karaoke made it. I would highly recommend Top Dog Entertainment AND karaoke to any future brides. Thank you for suggesting it, Gary and Amy! You're the best!

What can be said Gary and his wife are the best. All other DJ companies have to catch up and live up to there quality.

We got married on March 12 and we had all sort of problems leading up to our wedding my father had open heart surgery the photog cancled and so on the one thing we didn't worry about is the DJ. Every time we called trying to touch base with them they were so relaxed about it. I think Gary's favorite saying was don't worry there is plenty of time take care of what you need to and call us after. This was a great felling.

We gave them some of the music we wanted and Amy ran with it she knew what we wanted and Gary always had the guests entertained. Everyone from the young to the old enjoy the music and the personality of this great entertainment team. Everyone is still is talking about them and how much fun they had.

On a personal note Gary went above what a DJ is supose to do when he saw my dad and took time to help him to his seat at dinner time helping him with his plate. This also showed us that they cared about us and our family. Thank you.

The only thing we can say is that if you want the best you need to call Gary and Amy you wont regret it they are the TOP.

Thank you Top Dog for making our day special.

To all future brides/grooms ... there is nothing better than a married couple working together to make YOUR wedding day experience one as smooth and memorable as could be. Give Gary & Amy the opportunity to get to know you and watch the magic begin ... from live acoustic sound to on the fly song requests ... they do it all, and well!!

As a former wedding dj/mc ... I was very impressed with the level of professionalism, personalization and just plain fun that was provided.

Highly recommended!!

Gary and Amy did a great job working our wedding. Gary sang during cocktail hour and was great. He introduced the bridal party with lots of enthusiasm. When he introduced my wife and I he had the place going crazy. The music they played was up beat and exciting and had people on the dance floor the entire night. Our guests are still talking about how much fun the had at our wedding. I would highly recommend them to do a wedding.

Gary and Amy did a wonderful job for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party. We had people of all ages at the party, and Gary was careful to make sure that everyone had opportunities to dance and have fun. My parents loved the Frank Sinatra tunes, and the grandchildren loved the modern songs. It was obvious that these two professionals know exactly how to work a crowd! Here's what was best about hiring Top Dog: I didn't have to worry about anything. They were professional, fun, courteous, and reliable. I highly recommend them to Brides and anyone else planning a festive occasion in which people want to have fun together ! --- Karen O.

Gary and Amy exceeded my expectations in their ability to accommodate and improve upon my unique and challenging requests. Their teamwork made our wedding, cocktail hour and reception flow smoothly, and Gary's beautiful singing enhanced the evening with a live performance wrapped into a DJ price. They played the music we wanted and also fulfilled on-the-spot requests. On top of all that, they are fun, humorous, and very easy to work with. We're glad we found them and would never hire anyone else!

My wife and I just recently got married… April 4, 2009. Prior to our special day we had everything booked and paid for months in advance.

One week before our wedding, the place where we were having our reception went out of business and the band that was scheduled to play that night disappeared. I guess it is a sign of the times, but needless to say, we had to start from scratch all over again but this time with friends and family coming in from out of town in less than a week.

In one day we were able (by luck and some kind people) to setup a new venue for the wedding. At this point we had spent a lot of money, time and sleepless nights and really were considering just playing an iPod for our ceremony and reception.

Yes, an iPod is extremely tacky. So we tossed around with the idea of getting a dj knowing how difficult it would be to find an experienced dj that could schedule something the following weekend.

After some intense Googlin’ we found a dj team that struck our interest since they were highly experienced and offered an all-inclusive package which fit our budget. We called them up immediately and told them our situation.

The planets must have been aligned, because we got our dj. Gary and Amy worked some magic with their schedule after understanding the circumstances associated with our event and the economy.

From the last minute consulting and music preparation provided by Amy’s extensive knowledge and experience, to, Gary’s amazing vocal talents and enthusiasm on the mic. Our guests said it was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding!

This dynamic duo is a wealth of musical brilliance that puts them at a level hard to reach by many. They will exceed your expectations and make your special event or occasion a lasting impression.

We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you both did!
